Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical technique that has been in practice for over 5000 years.
Acupuncture is essentially the insertion and manipulation of very fine needles into specific points on the body in order to “reprogram” and restore normal functions by stimulating certain points on the body, which promotes health and alleviates pain and suffering.
Because of its relatively low cost and noninvasive nature, acupuncture has become a highly popular form of complementary health care. Each treatment is designed uniquely to address imbalance in each individual pet.
Chinese Herbal Therapy is often used in conjunction with acupuncture. Together they can speed recovery from disease, and in many cases decrease the frequency of acupuncture treatments. Most pets become very relaxed, or quite sleepy during the treatment, and many of them start to look forward to their sessions!
These types of treatments are successfully used to treat a wide variety of conditions including arthritis, muscle soreness, disc problems, skin/ear problems, vomiting/diarrhea, seizures, urinary conditions including chronic cystitis, and behavioral problems.
